“cute and rustic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

quiet little hideaway in the middle of the city. There are really neat little stores and gift shops and a really nice inner court to sit and enjoy a coffee, book or picnic lunch.

“A Must Do, Even if Only for Ten Minutes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

An open market in the middle of an old brick building. When we stopped by there was a band playing as part of a summer concert. Good food, nice wares.

“Mostly closed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012 via mobile

This used to be a great little square of bustling shops and unique vendors; now many doors are closed, windows empty. The economy has not been kind here, though the buskers and the bead shop remain as well as a few others.

“Eclectic, but feels empty”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2012

Market square is in an old building which has a lot of character, but the only businesses I remember being there were a vegetarian restaurant, a mexican restaurant, what looked to be a fabulous bead store, and and ice cream store. The neighborhood feels bohemian and edgy.

“A Quick Stroll Through Market Square”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2011

It's always a treat to visit this beautiful historical collage of buildings in the heart of Victoria. The shops are trendy and pricey, but the atmosphere is friendly and multicultural. It's a must-see on a Victoria visit.
